Farm Life

I am slowly preparing myself for my inevitable rejection of society by hanging out at goat farms. So far, so good.

Not a goat.

Ha! I’m totally kidding. That’s not even a goat. You can’t live on a farm.

    Looks like you were having a very interesting conversation with Goat #2. Or it was zeroing in on your camera strap.

    I could to live on a farm; I’m totally crushing on the bull.

    Dude, livestock. Whoa.

    Just be careful. Some goats can be total a-holes. Just don’t turn your backs on them. I live in a very rural area of the country, so I know what I’m talking about.

    Good, you’ve got your animal taxonomy down. Now you just need to learn how to…(I was going to insert some sort of ridiculously hard and/or gross farm chore here, but then I realized I didn’t know any because I’m just that much of a city girl).

    I’ve become rather fond of goats since I discovered some local pygmy goats. You’ve got some great shots here.

  7. Dave2 Says:

    Can’t we just call everything on the farm a “goat” and be done with it? This would save me from having to learn anything new which, I think we can both agree, is not a good idea.

    I’d say that heifer/bull awareness is probably more important than goat/not goat.

    Tapping toes and drumming fingers…waiting for the “Jen Milks the Goat” photos.

    So many different type of goats. I’m sure all of them can eat a tin can without too much effort.

    We were going to get goats at one time, until someone told us they will pee in their own faces. Kinda ruined it for me.

    Have you seen the goats jump? A friend of mine had goats. They could jump freakishly high and land on a narrow ledge with no problem.

  13. Rhea Says:

    I love goats. I would like to own one. Do you think they make good apartment pets?

    don: definitely a riveting conversation.
    finn: it’s actually a girl cow! but she’s a looker, all right.
    anon: that’s exactly what i said!
    churlita: the ones with the little ears look kind of shifty to me. the big-eared ones? those you can trust.
    cheryl: soon enough, you’ll be on board with my farm idea. just give it time…
    claire: pygmy goats are the best! think i could have one in my apartment?
    dave2: i think that’s totally fine. maybe we’ll need some distinctions, though, like – regular goat, cow goat, goat with wings, walking on two legs goat.
    sir: i suppose that’s true if you’re a cow.
    fiorello: soon, soon.
    marty: i loved the one with the striped face. but there were no tin cans to be found.
    derfina: wait… they pee in each other’s faces, or can they actually pee into their own face? do they have to get into some yoga pose for that? my goats totally won’t do that.
    robin: yes! i think it’s so cute when they jump around as kids.
    rhea: i was just asking myself the same thing. i suspect the noise might arouse suspicion. :)
    tracy lynn: because my website sucks. but dude, i totally knew it was you!
